Pierre Gasly's surprising victory at the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday provides many special statistics.

For example, the 'big three' are missing on the podium for the first time since 2012 and France has another race winner in the premier class of motorsport after 24 years.

With Gasly from AlphaTauri, number two Carlos Sainz from McLaren and Lance Stroll from Racing Point, the Italian GP had a special combination of teams on the podium.

It is the first time since the GP of Hungary in 2012 that the 'big three' (Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull Racing) have not made it to the top three.

Eight years ago, Lewis Hamilton won on behalf of McLaren at the Hungaroring and Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean, both from Lotus-Renault, completed the podium.

Sebastian Vettel was fourth in Hungary on behalf of Red Bull.

On Sunday at Monza, Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) was the best driver of a top team in fifth place, while Max Verstappen retired due to engine problems.

Gasly became the first French winner in Italy since Olivier Panis in Monaco in 1996.

24-year-old Gasly was three months old when the Ligier-Mugen-Honda driver in Monte Carlo knocked David Coulthard and Johnny Herbert out.

Worst home race this century for Ferrari

Gasly's victory was also AlphaTauri's first victory in twelve years.

In 2008 Sebastian Vettel was the fastest at Monza for the team that was still called Toro Rosso at the time.

Max Verstappen joined Torro Rosso, for which he rode 23 GPs, no further than fourth places in the United States and Hungary in 2016.

For Ferrari, Sunday had a historically bad race at Monza.

Both Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc crashed after Fernando Alonso became the last Ferrari driver to fail on the home circuit in 2014.

The last time both drivers from the Italian racing team retired from Monza was in 1995 when Gerhard Berger and Jean Alesi drove for Ferrari.
